Web, Mobile, Desktop Typed Clients
ServiceStack's primary goal is to enhance the value of System APIs which serve as the blueprint that most features centered around. By using simple & pure dependency-free DTO models decoupled from any implementation we're free to continue layering on features which now sees ServiceStack APIs as the most versatile in the world where the same high-performance APIs can be consumed from HTTP in any combination of Route, QueryString, FormData or a myriad of data formats, via popular resilient MQ Servers whilst simultaneously supporting legacy integrations like SOAP or adopting new technologies like gRPC without sacrificing any native HTTP integrations.
To maximize the value of APIs we're focused beyond the API boundary by making it as simple as possible for API Consumers to call your APIs, thereby making them more appealing and creating multiplicative value with the time & effort saved by each API consumer.
In addition to providing native end-to-end typed integrations to 9 of the most popular languages used in creating Web, Mobile & Desktop Apps, we also maintain IDE plugins for most major IDEs enabling your API Consumers to easily add/update typed API Service References from within Rider, VS.NET, Android Studio, PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine, Php/WebStorm & Eclipse.
The best approach for achieving its goals of capturing a systems functionality in a typed Service contract that yields the most reusable & evolvable API design was to adopt a message-based design that embraces the revered SOA Integration Patterns best-practices by realizing its Remote Facade, Data Transfer Object and Service Gateway patterns whose benefits positions ServiceStack in a rarefied breed of frameworks to enable optimal end-to-end typed API integrations without code-gen as the same dep-free Service Models used to define its APIs can be used as-is in .NET Apps.
Unlike RPC, messages can be evolved, intercepted, routed, decorated & serialized with natural decoupling of an APIs coarse-grained DTO contracts from its implementation allowing front & back-end developers to collaborate on an agreed high-level API design free of detail concerns, before using the contract-first DTOs to independently implement any required functionality.
It allows client logic to bind to impl-free service client interfaces that can be easily substituted from a test client returning mock data to utilizing any of the many available .NET generic Service Client implementations including gRPC.
The benefit afforded by capturing an entire API boundary into impl-free Service Contracts extends to all natively supported languages who only need be concerned with generating declarative DTOs resulting in types encapsulating richer metadata beyond what's possible with restrictive primitive types found in other code-gen solutions like Open API.
It enables teams across disciplines and languages to work the same way when integrating internal or external applications or tools. This reduces software maintenance efforts and enables developers to focus on the important part of their code rather than the plumbing between client & server.
From its outset ServiceStack has been consistently promoting the same remote service best-practices for over a decade, whose adoption of its time-tested patterns has survived beyond several abandoned .NET Web Service frameworks, iterations & programming models during its lifetime with any investments in them having failed along with them.
Instead of enduring wasted investments through constant rewrites, ServiceStack APIs have in contrast remained constant whilst gaining value over time, continuing to add support for more languages, typed clients, IDE integrations, endpoints, data formats & .NET Hosts.
locode.dev is our Rapid Application Development (RAD) solution to quickly develop beautiful Full Stack CRUD Apps around AutoQuery APIs, suitable for a wide number of use-cases including:
Creating an instant UI around existing Database-First RDBMS tables
Highly customizable, declarative Code-First development model
As Locode’s UI is built on top of ServiceStack’s industrial strength AutoQuery APIs, Hybrid Apps can benefit from its superior end-to-end typed development model for creating Web, Mobile & Desktop Apps.
Our first-class Blazor WASM support encompasses an impressively productive dev model with 100% API Types reuse without reliance on tooling.
The initial release includes themable Bootstrap and Tailwind UI components and an integrated pre-rendering solution to enable its instant load times.
Built into every ServiceStack v6 App is API Explorer - an instant integrated Postman and Swagger UI alternative to quickly Call and Explore your APIs.
With envious performance and unmatched customizability, API Explorer lets you easily incorporate gorgeous, rich, interactive API Documentation your API Consumers will love who'll be able to read its source code in their preferred programming language and easily call from their existing Client Apps.
Surface the ideal API a developer would naturally write and complete their implementation for them with AutoQuery!
AutoQuery which utilizes conventions to automate the creation of intent-based self-descriptive APIs that are able to specify configurable conventions and leverage extensibility options for a great developer experience.
Generate Native Types for your preferred language and platforms directly from within your favorite IDE or easy to use CLI tooling.
Add and update lightweight client code straight from the server you integrate with giving you an easy to use end-to-end typed interface with your ServiceStack server.
Ultimate simple typed client integrations utilizing resilient message-based APIs and Rich POCO DTOs
Reuse your future-proofed ServiceStack APIs to reach gRPC's efficient typed universe
Generate fully featured web services dynamically from your RDBMS of choice with ease allowing you to un-silo your valuable data.
AutoGen for AutoQuery generates the required DTO types at runtime, and ServiceStack tooling allows you to extract those runtime types, giving you a future proof pathway to customize and migrate to a code-first model when you need.
First class client libraries for your favorite Android and iOS development frameworks, working in your preferred language.
Smart Typed Clients simplify integration, with the ability to use generated DTO classes to created a typed end-to-end integration with any ServiceStack application.

ServiceStack tooling makes it fast to Mix in additional functionality into your new or existing ServiceStack projects with templates for GitHub Actions to suit a variety of situations.
Managed Files Uploads is a high-level ServiceStack feature that allows you to configure multiple managed file upload locations within the same App that any ServiceStack HTTP API can declaratively annotate on Request DTOs to upload files to AWS S3, Azure Blob storage or internal File Systems.
It's especially useful in AutoQuery CRUD APIs as it enables an easy way to populate a file path that can be stored along with a table row without the uploaded files embedded in the database itself, taking up valuable RDBMS resources and significantly impacting its performance.
Create gRPC services in a consistent way to all your other services or easily add gRPC support to your existing ServiceStack services.
ServiceStack’s gRPC support enables a highly productive development environment for developing high-performance gRPC HTTP/2 Services by making ServiceStack’s existing typed Services available from ASP.NET’s gRPC endpoints.
